The content of these fillings are approximately 50% mercury which is the biggest concern by most, approximately 20% silver, tin 14%,copper 8% and then other metals added to make the material up.
We know mercury vapour comes off these fillings during normal function and in grinding. We therefore know a vapour of mercury is created in the mouth. We however don’t have enough research to know exactly the affect this vapour has on our bodies. This is where the problem arises. If they are to be removed it needs to be done as safely as possible.
